Ray Allen's letter to himself transcends basketball

November 3, 2016

 

Retiring from the professional game after starting out with the Bucks in '96, Ray Allen has written a letter to his younger self for the Player's Tribune

 

With 1300 games, 2 titles, and so many other stats under his belt, the letter reads as words of wisdom from and for a true professional. In it, he makes clear the importance of good habits, discipline, and grinding your way through life as an outsider. Using the medium of basketball, Allen's letter transcends sport, dishing out deliverables for anybody who has been doubted, filled with doubt, or simply overwhelmed. 

 

A man who has missed and made over 10,000 shots and played well over 10,000 hours in the spotlight, this 20 minute read is worth the time.
